The goal of Penryn Sport is to be competitive amongst the top independent schools in South Africa, as well as in local leagues, while encouraging scholars to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.
In addition to the obvious physical benefits of sport, it is also offered at Penryn to enable scholars to develop their character in the following ways:
• The ability to work in a team,
• The will to win (as opposed to a focus on winning alone),
• The opportunity to succeed, thereby developing self-esteem,
• Achieving a healthy body and mind.
